Migrating from Mac to Mac
 
I'm using SuperDuper 2.1.3. (Great, trouble free app!).

Now I must migrate from this iMac to an equivalent machine, same hard drive size, same Mac OS X 10.4.8. I want to move absolutely everything.

Question: I'm backed up to a FireWire drive. Do I follow the same "Recovering from a Disaster" instructions, page 27 of the UserGuide.pdf? Can I safely ignore the Sandbox instructions?

Kind regards,

Yes and yes.

I also want to add, as long as the machines are the same arch (Intel or PPC) I could make a clone of the HD in my Mac Mini and boot that clone via firewire on my MacBook. An iMac setup will boot a PowerMac since OS X has support for all of Apple's hardware. (Just make sure you have your OS updated to the latest point release.)

You could boot the new machine in target disk mode, clone your entire setup over to it via firewire and be good to go without even using an external drive if I understand everything correctly.

Yes, assuming that they can both run from the specific build of the OS. New Macs often have special builds that don't sync up until the next real update...

Thanks for this. Currently it seems less likely I'll need to migrate to a new machine. But good information to have. Thanks.
